Sports and Work Injury Treatments Explained

Sports Injuries

Are you a weekend warrior or a more dedicated sports person? Maybe you have started a new training regime and are suffering the effects of a particularly enthusiastic trainer. Either way repetitive injuries can occur when we overuse one muscle set, or push beyond our usual limits in an effort to improve technique, speed, strength, endurance and cardiovascular fitness.

Utilising deep tissue massage techniques can realign muscle fibers, break up any fibrous scar tissue or sticky collagen fibers that may be congregating. Additionally, this technique can get you back up and moving quicker and more efficiently, with less collateral damage, compensation and discomfort.

Using Kinesiology we can investigate any bad habits you may have subconciously set up, and reprogram your muscle response for optimum energy usage and performance improvement.

Work Injuries

Desk jockey? Did you know that staring at a computer can lead to severe neck and shoulder pain, frozen shoulders, headaches and lower back pain? If you commute to work daily, add sciatic pain to that list. Posture correction and specific stretches can minimise the impact. Terrigal Bodywork’s remedial massage will release your chest and upper back muscles, and a Kinesiology balance will ensure all muscles are working at the right ratio.

Standing all day? Circulation can be affected and hamstrings begin to tighten. The curvature of your spine can change as you fatigue. Resting on one leg all day can lead to ankle and knee pain as well as sciatic pain and middle back discomfort.

Heavy lifting and climbing? Joints begin feeling the strain. Lower back pain becomes consistent, forearms, elbows and shoulders begin to pain, Are you activating your core and abdominal muscles to support your lower back? Kinesiology muscle balance and massage to release hamstrings and lower back tension are the key, along with calf stretches.

Life Injuries

Maybe you just slouch on the couch and your back is starting to complain. Do you stay up late staring at the computer / phone / tablet / television creating headaches, neck strain, stinging eyes? All of these can be reduced by keeping your muscles regularly treated, preventing long term build up of tension and stress.
